Picture Chore Chart for Non-Readers

Got a kiddo in your house that is ready to tackle a few chores?

Most kids are ready to put their laundry away long before they can actually read the word “laundry”. Our picture chore chart for non-readers is perfect for getting the littlest kids into a routine of helping around the house each day.

We’ve also included a few personal care tasks that might help encourage some independence and self-sufficiency. Tasks such as “brush teeth”, “get dressed”, and “put dirty clothes away”.
